Clean, spacious, great for large families.

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place after searching for affordable accommodation for a family of 5 during the Summer school holiday to Tassie. Nice secluded area, quiet position, right on the river's edge. It was clean, ticked all of our boxes for space, cleanliness and amenities. The architecture is quirky 60's, some of the fittings and finishes are not "hotel perfect" which for me, adds to the comfort. Would be happy to return.
